Video Rendering HDD Setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i have a quick question related to performance with video rendering rig, regarding to the HDD setup.

I have my OS installed on my SSD and my user files on my F3.

I was planning on RAIDing my two f3's for better read and write perfomance
or
using one f3 as my user files and such and just rendering to the other f3.

Any input on what may be faster or an ideal setup?

The RAID array would be faster. Video rendering can be taxing on hard drives, but as you may already know you will double the chance of failure. So once your are done rendering the files, a backup should be in order.

thanks, after doing a little more research it appears that it is still better to render from one hdd to another.
While Raid is faster read and write, it will be taxing it more by trying to do both at the same time during a video rendering.
